january 1860, shortly after homer had moved to new york city. in new york, homer took a few lessons in painting from frederic rondel. rondel was a rather sentimental landscape painter who had little influence on homer's style beyond his technical instruction in the use of oils. when the civil war began, harper's commissioned the artist to depict life at the front. rovi behind the lines with the potomac army, homer produced a series of closelybserved studies of camp life. homer's paintings of this period have an anecdotal or literary quality in keeping with the traditions of magazine illustration, but he also places new emphasis on pictorial design and the purely visual character of a scene-- qualities typical of the photographs of mathew brady and others. like the photographers of the civil war, whose equipment made action scenes impossible, homer preferred static group formations, and yet the feeling of directness in recording the ordinary lends to his work a special force. prisoners from the front, with its profound sense of the resignation, exhaustion, and human cost of war, evoked

selma, when we heard that he had been shot. i came to new york, attended the service for him. amy goodman: what is your assessment of the significance of malcolm x? rep. john lewis: i think malcolm played a major role in helping to educate, inform and dramatize the need for mass movement. people read about him. many of the young people, black and white, read his story. many did not agree necessarily with his techniques or his tactic. but if malcolm had lived, i am convinced that he would have been part of the southern nonviolent wing of the civil rights movement. amy goodman: and his relationship with dr. king? what did dr. king think? rep. john lewis: i remember malcolm being in the hotel, before we even saw him in kenya, the night of the march on washington-the evening before the march on washington. he was at the hilton hotel in washington. now, he didn't like the way the march turned out, because he said it was like a picnic and that it was not strong enough. amy goodman: and he wasn't invited to speak. rep. john lewis: he was not invited to speak. we-i didn't have anything to

james baldwins, people of that stature in film. (jim jarmusch) for us in new york at the time, in the late seventies, it was an idea kind of related to the music scene at the time, which was that we are not virtuoso filmmakers, but we have something we'd like to express. and that desire to express it was more important than having a more professional attitude, or having a lot of experience. (jim jarmusch) when i started thinking about "stranger than paradise," there were severe limitations as far as how much money i could get to make a film like that. (jim stark) "stranger than paradise" cash cost was $160,000, and it grossed many times more than that. jim's pacing was very slow and deliberate. there was a kind of irony in how he approached the world, which was not typical of filmmaking. there's a meandering approach that lets you decide what you thought was important about the story. the style of the movie and the sensibility of it were clearly emanated from the personality of jim jarmusch but also happened to be perfect for the financial circumstances and constraints under which
